The Township 

of Woodbridge 

New Jersey 

Woodbridge Township is the oldest Township in the State of 
New Jersey, rich in history, and steeped in tradition. 

Woodbridge was settled in 1664, but was not granted a 
Charter until 1669, by King Charles. The original boundaries, 
set by this Charter of Woodbrige Township, included what we 
now know today as the communities of Rohway, Carteret, Me- 
tuchen, and parts of Edison Township. 

Historians believe that our name was derived from the town 
of Woodbridge, in Suffolk County, England, where many of the 
emigrants who settled in our community came from originally. 

New Jersey's first newspaper was printed In Woodbridge in 
I 765 by James Parker, and during the Revolutionary War, Wood- 
bridge, by being on the main highway between New York and 
Philadelphia, was the center of much activity during this era 
of American history. 

In the nineteenth century, clay mining and brick manufacturing 
were the main industries of the township. In fact the seal of 
the Township of Woodbridge shows a kiln used to fire the brick, 
crossed shovel and pick, the main tools used In those days to 
mine clay, and a ship's wheel, a symbol of the barges used to 
transport the clay to New York. 

Woodbridge, for many years, enjoyed the enviable reputation 
as an outstanding summer resort for the New York-New Jersey 
area, with steamers and trains bringing hundreds of vacationers 
to our community. 

But time has changed the face and character of Woodbridge. 
With the great change In the means of travel, transportation, 
and modern highways, Woodbridge has in a very short time 
grown from a sleepy, small-town community to thfe modern 
seventh largest community in the State of New Jersey, with more 
than one hundred thousand residents.

Woodbridge Fire Company No. 1 

1897 — 1972 

By Longin W. Marzecki, Historian 

In the last quarter of the 1800's, Woodbridge, New Jersey, 
was a thriving little town with a busy business section, clay min- 
ing operations, several docks on the streams leading to the sea 
and yet, despite these commercial attributes, it was still con- 
sidered a small farming community. 

It had no fire department, no central water supply and no 
paved roads. hlowever, there was a good neighbor spirit 
amongst the townspeople and surrounding communities. 

In those days, not much could be done to save a house on fire. 
The primary consideration was the safety of its occupants. Then 
attempts were made to salvage whatever belongings were near 
at hand. 

In 1887, a fire suddenly engulfed several stores on Main Street 
between School and Pearl Streets. The bell In the tower of the 
Methodist Church, across the street from the fire, was rung 
frantically, warning Woodbridge citizens of the fire, and every 
able-bodied man rushed to help. 

A local hardware store was raided of every pail, and an im- 
promptu bucket brigade stretched from nearby wells to the holo- 
caust. A feed store, grocery store and a barber shop were 
reduced to ashes. The heroic efforts by the fire fighters were 
to no avail. Nine years later, the next great fire reduced a busy 
brick and tile plant to its foundations. Thus it was, in 1897, 
after much discussion, the leading young men decided to form 
a fire company. On October 28, a meeting was held in a local 
hall during which prospective firemen were recruited and officers 
elected. 

Orderly financing was arranged, but there had been some 
doubt about the legality of the first election. This was resolved, 
and an Initial appropriation of $500 was voted. The expenses 
were modest enough. The land for the fire house cost only 
$350, of which $50 was donated by the seller, and a local brew- 
ing company was the greatest financial benefactor, with a gift 
of one hundred dollars.

Woodbridge Fire Company No. 1 

Continued from page 9 . . . 

With the present before them, and the future In mind, the 
new fire company voted to purchase a hose reel, 400 feet of hose 
and 12 buckets. Some citizens asked, "Why the reel and hose, 
when there are no water hydrants or pumps?" hHowever, the 
organization for fighting fires was set up and ready to go. The 
men made practice runs, and held fire drills with the hose reel. 
Later on, an enterprising fireman suggested a better means of 
locomotion for faster arrivals. A local merchant volunteered the 
use of his horse and wagon in case of a fire. 

When the alarm sounded, he Immediately drove to the place 
where the hose reel was kept, and on his arrival he was joined 
by several volunteers. They would grab the reel, and sitting on 
the tailboard of the wagon, they rode away to the scene holding 
onto the fire equipment. Needless to say, there were a number 
of humorous Incidents, one of which was when the hose reel 
slipped from the grasp of those on the tailboard and rolled bock 
down Main Street. Firemen and citizens all attempted to re- 
trieve the runaway hose reel, while the merchant turned his horse 
and wagon around to join In the pursuit. This practice was ended 
in 1905, when the volunteers obtained a horse and a fire supply 
wagon. 

This original hose reel now stands in honored glory and remem- 
brance on the side of the apron of the present fire house on 
School Street. 

In 1898, a "modern" hook and ladder wagon, drawn either 
by hand or horse, was added. This was rather thin and fragile 
when compared with today's fire equipment. However, it was 
the ultimate In Its day. It had several ladders, buckets slung 
underneath and a single tongue for a pair of horses. The towns- 
people purposely passed the carriage shed of a local plumber 
where they gazed at the bright red wagon with pride and ap- 
proval. 

The "hook and ladder" had been designed by Seagrave of 
Trenton, N. J., and it was first leased, and then purchased by 
the fire company. It remained In service until 1924. 

In 1901 a fire house was built on the site of the present one on 
School Street, next to Heard's Brook. A steel locomotive wheel 
tire was hung in the tower as the alarm system. A for comporl-

Woodbr/dge Fire Company No. 7 

Continued from page II... 

son to today's highly audible air horn (which is mounted on the 
roof of the firehouse), which signals a fire, and the home alarm 
radio alerting system, whereby every fireman has a radio receiver, 
which is activated from the base radio at fire headquarters, 
which transmits the location of the fire coll. 

Behind this structure on a street facing the railroad yard was 
a stable that housed the fire horses. The original team of "Tom 
and hHarry" worked together for years. When the alarm was 
sounded, they pawed and kicked until someone released them 
from their stalls. Straight as an arrow they ran through the wil- 
low woods to the fire house and assumed their places. They 
waited impatiently as the harnesses were attached, and every 
once in awhile turned their heads as if to soy, "Stop stalling, 
we've got to get going!" 

As firemen even today hove certain duties to perform in the 
station during quiet periods, so did Tom and hiarry. They did 
coach work and pulled hearses at extra-elegant funerals. A tale 
handed down through the generations about these horses goes 
something like this. 

While in a solemn procession, pulling a hearse going up Main 
Street, the fire alarm sounded. Tom and Horry immediately 
picked up their ears, snorted and started -to run. They left the 
procession with the mourners startled at their antics. The fire 
horses mode a sharp turn with two wheels in the air, and headed 
for the fire house. They arrived ready for duty with the hearse 
and its contents, just about falling out through the bock door. 

Later "Tom and Horry" were replaced by "Buddie and 
Buster," who remained in part-time fire service until their stable 
burned down, and these fine animals were lost in the fire. 

Woodbridge Fire Company No. I , was one of the first vol- 
unteer units in the State of New Jersey to obtain motorized 
fire apparatus. In December, 1914, the Perth Amboy Garage 
was contracted to build a special Willys-Overland utility truck. 

It hod no pump but carried hose, chemicals and 12 firemen. 
The truck was commissioned on April 12, 1915, and remained in 
service for five years. It was called a "bucking bronco" due to its 
unusual performance. When four or more firemen stood on the

The Township of Woodbridge, New Jersey 

Continued from page 5 . . . 

Many large and small, and nationally known companies have 
moved their facilities and operations to Woodbridge — building 
modern commercial, industrial, mercantile and office buildings 
to house their business establishments, and thus providing employ- 
ment and a livelihood for the many families residing in the Town- 
ship and the surrounding communities. 

Woodbridge Is an ever growing progressive community, with 
constant changes that truly make It the "All American City" it 
was named a few years past. 

Jeremiah Dally, an early historian of Woodbridge, truly must 
have been a man of vision, when he wrote in 1873: "If we could 
play Rip Van Winkle, and open our eyes on the village two 
hundred years from now, doubtless, we should see more wonder- 
ful changes." 



i leeas ^^ddidtance 

The Free Public Library of Woodbridge calls upon all persons 
to please aid its Historical Society. 

This library group Is trying to obtain pictures, stories, and 
other items that would help In the compiling of the Individual 
histories of the different civic, fraternal, religious and the emer- 
gency service groups of Woodbridge Township. 

The group suggests that, if you do not wish to donate items 
to the library, you lend them to the library for a few days, so 
they may have the opportunity to reproduce them, and thus 
the hlistorical Society will, by gathering up all the many different 
items, be able to piece together the whole story in order to 
leave a legacy for generations of new citizens of Woodbridge, 
in the many years to come.

Woodbr/dge Fire Company No, 1 

Continued from page 23 . . . 

rear platform, the front end was lifted into the oir, thereby nulli- 
fying the steering qualities. The positive contribution from shift- 
ing weight toward the rear was for dodging the muddy potholes 
by the forward wheels. 

It had solid rubber tires and the wheels were chain-driven. 
At night, the forward end was illuminated by two carbide 
lamps, and the rear was marked by two red kerosene lanterns. 

The transition from horse-drown to motorized power was 
vehemently resisted by the "old-timers." Their finest arguments 
pointed to the human-like qualities of animals plus horse sense. 
Grudgingly, they admitted that the "motor trucks" were putting 
"old Dobbin" Into pasture. 

Of course, they did have a few last laughs as they pulled 
out of the firehouse with their horses, while the "new-fangled 
machine" wouldn't start, despite constant cranking by hand. No 
doubt their greatest glee come when a team of horses had to 
be hooked up to the stalled machine to pull it to the scene of the 
fire. 

In 1922, a modern 750-gallon per minute American LoFrance 
pumper was purchased, which was delivered to Woodbridge In 
o railroad box car. A short time after this combination chemical 
pumper was In service, the Willys-Overland apparatus was sold 
to a fire company in the township. As a note of interest, the 
original LaFrance was overhauled in 1935, and the chemical tank 
was replaced with a 60-gallon booster tank. 

In 1924, a White hook and ladder truck with a complete dou- 
ble set of equipment was bought. In 1925, a new American 
LaFrance combination booster-pumper was purchased, and about 
ten years later a Ford emergency truck was hand-built by the 
volunteer firemen from a used chassis. This was loaded with every 
possible modern device of the day, and was used for many types 
of emergency calls besides fires. 

In 1941, two new apparatus were delivered by the American 
LaFrance Company. One was a 750 gpm pumper, and the other 
o seventy-five foot aerial ladder which did double-duty at the 
train disaster in 1951. Then In 1953, Engine #5 (750 gpm-TASC), 
was purchased to augment the growing need for additional fire 
equipment.

Woodbr/dge Fire Company No. 7 

Continued from page 35 . . . 

Eight years later, as the demand for new homes swept the 
nation, Woodbrldge was caught up In the building boom, and with 
the need for Improved fire protection, Engine #6 (1000 gpm- 
TASC) was purchased In 1961, and Engine #7 (1000 gpm-TASC) 
was obtained In 1967. 

After almost thirty years of service, the 1941 aerial ladder 
was replaced In 1971 with a 100-foot American LaFrance, rear- 
mounted aerial ladder. 

Although the original firehouse had been expanded In 1937, It 
became outmoded, and so It was on the morning of October 4, 
1967, the wrecking ball began Its job of knocking down the old to 
make way for the new Colonial style structure. 

Twenty months later, on May 18th, 1969, the present building 
was dedicated. The new firehouse contains five boys, a meeting 
and recreation room, a dormitory, fire prevention office, and a 
watch desk room. 

It must be noted that the fire company Is responsible for the 
protection of Woodbrldge proper and Sewaren section of the 
Township, with Its petroleum tank forms, dock facilities, chemical 
storage and distribution points, commercial and residential areas, 
and high-rise buildings, and also the large sprawling Woodbrldge 
Center complex, which comprise Fire District Number I, of 
Woodbrldge Township. 

Over the years, Woodbrldge Fire Company, which Is made 
up of two divisions, the Engine and the Truck, with on overall 
complement of 65 volunteers, has responded to a variety of colls: 
from rescuing on animal In a tree, to a small child In a burning 
building; from on oil fire to a train disaster; and from a house 
fire to on Industrial or commercial fire. 

Large or small as the emergency may be, the men of Wood- 
bridge Fire Company No. I , today, as In the past, respond to 
the "call" for the protection of life and property.
